    Hi.
    I am so mad att Apple right now!

    My screen got broken and the touchpad automatic typed wrong password so it got locked. According to apple, the only way to unlock the phone was to reset the phone or use a backup. (i dont use backup since i have experience 2 times before a tottal erase of my phone and i dont trust apple).
    So therefore i my self transfer photos, memmos etc 2-4 times each years to my pc.

    How ever, i found a way to go around this lock by get iphone to dfu mode and force itunes to uppdate the phone. In that way i should be able to type the code as normal.

    Did you think this work? NO! ****ing itunes reseted my phone insted of uppdate it (this is why i dont do backups, because itunes fails all the time and iclouds doesnt have enough storage).

    So now my phone wants me to use an backup or set it as a new device.

    How do i recover my phone from before? I just was at vaccation and have a lot of photos.
    Can you recommend a third party program that is free?
    ? I want it like it was before if possible too.

    Sorry you are having troubles, but let me see if I understand this

    You are mad at Apple because:
    • You broke your screen
    • The "touchpad automatic typed wrong password so it got locked"
    • You don't have a backup of any kind
    • Apple told you how to fix it, but you didn't have a backup locally or in the cloud
    • DFU mode works the way it is supposed to, but you didn't understand it
    • iTunes fails all the time (although this time it worked the way it is supposed to)
    • iCloud doesn't give you enough free space and you didn't want to have to pay to prevent things like this
    You want it like it was before
    I'd say your chances of that are slim and none

    Couple of thoughts that might help others to help you though:
    • What version iPhone is this, and what iOS are you using?
    • Your screen was broken, did you get it repaired? If so, can you not just type your password?

    Apple's backups work fine in iTunes and iCloud, when you use them

    You still haven't said which iPhone it is and what iOS
    It might make a difference in the help you are able to receive

    I tried to get you headed the right direction, but you are on your own now
    Enjoy!

    Huh? Is that English?

    How is it anybodys fault but your own that your phone "got broken" and is unable to be used anymore??

    Set up your phone as new, and then use it.

    Sounds like you're more mad at yourself for not doing what you should to protect yourself and even more mad that Apple can't work magic to help you do the things you SHOULD have done.

    Moderator Note:

    There is no way to bypass the activation lock and nobody here will be able to help you with that.
